We've got a Windows Server 2003 box that had a drive go bad in the RAID. We've replaced the drive, and the RAID appears to be 100% back to normal. Our manufacturer-supplied RAID tools confirm the health of the array at this point.
The problem is that while the drive was bad, Windows started wanting to run CHKDSK against the volume at boot, and it still does.
I've heard conflicting information as to whether CHKDSK /F is something safe or advisable to run in this situation. We're not seeing any indications of problems with the file system other than the OS wanting to run CHKDSK.
Is this something advisable? Is there potential for unintended data loss? And will it even work?
